FILE - In this July 26, 2009 file photo shows Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin gestures while giving her resignation speech in Fairbanks, Alaska. A year after her abrupt resignation as Alaska governor, Palin has evolved into a political personality writ large, commanding weeks of headlines for a single Facebook observation _ see health care "death panels" _ and six-figure speaking fees from groups clamoring for her words. Going rogue with a best-selling memoir only added to her aura among the conservative faithful and she has easily eclipsed other Republicans as the coveted endorsement this election year.

Sarah Palin spreads the word of "Mama Grizzlies" in new video

Former governor's political action committee stands against the "fundamental transformation of America"

Possibly preparing for a 2012 campaign for ... something, Sarah Palin's PAC is distributing a new video touting the strength of her "Mama Grizzlies," a term Palin uses to refer to a certain brand of conservative women she supports in state races and who make up a sizable chunk of her potential voting pool. The voiceover in the video is a speech given by Palin herself at a conference for anti-abortion political group the Susan B. Anthony List.

CBS News has already had its political analyst take a crack at the video, and ABC News is warning Washington to "watch out." Andrew Sullivan posted a letter from a reader regarding the "Mama Grizzly" meme and what it has to do with Trig Palin's Down syndrome. And Politics Daily picks the video missive to bits. Watch it for yourself:
